    Hi, I'm new here. The wife and I own a 2018 Limited 2.5i with the HK infotainment system. I'm going to get straight to the issue. Once the vehicle is on, the infotainment system starts to freak out and start selecting/tapping things on the screen by itself. Which then creates the issue of it...

    Hey everyone, as the weather is getting warmer I’ve started to turn the AC on but have noticed that even after 20-30 mins of driving it doesn’t blow very cold. A few notes; this is my first warm season with the Outback, outside temp is roughly 20 degrees C (68 F), have it turned to the lowest...

    Hey everyone, I picked up my lightly used Outback over the weekend and I’m super excited to be part of this group! In just a few days it’s such an upgrade from my ‘09 Lancer. It had just 55,000km on it (34,000 mi) and was in excellent condition! I don’t think I’ll do any crazy mods yet, but...
  4. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    When replacing the PCV Valve, just thread it back in or do you put on teflon tape, anti-seize, or some other thing I don't know about. Thanks in advance.
  5. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I'm the original owner of my 2017 Outback 3.6R Limited. Mileage is at almost 56K. Reading suggested maintenance says to replace the spark plugs at 60K miles. Two questions to follow. 1st. What is the least invasive and proven process to replace the spark plugs? The plugs are about 2 inches...
  6. Lighting, Electrical & Electronics
    Hello! I have a 2018 Subaru Outback, So it’s been incredibly hot where I live (100+) and I noticed some sort of damage on the inside of the screen. When I try to use the radio or CarPlay it will press the button that is beneath the damage and it’s really irritating. Recently more spots started...

    New to us 2018 Outback 3.6R

    We are super excited to mod the dadwagon. Baby on the way and we are ready with the extra room. Anyone have good luck with the cheaper Amazon LED kits our there (light bars, hood lights, etc...) I have no problem wiring, just looking at the overall brightness quality/longevity of those lights...

    Being off school and home with my children, I have started looking at Outbacks and I am thinking I need to buy one in a few months. I am looking at the 2018 or 2019 3.6 Limited. As I am new to this, is there a benefit to on year over another? Not just that the 2019 is newer and would have longer...

    Ok, so apologies for those who already knew this, the forum search didn't lead me to any answers for my specific make/model/head unit but I was able to figure it out using trial and error after seeing how to access the menus for other years. Oddly enough they aren't exactly the same. If you're...

    2018 Outback Limited 2.5 - 22,000 miles Ok, so over the past couple of weeks I have noticed a slight "rattling" sound in the center/right air vent above the headunit but everything has been working fine. Figured when I took it in for the next oil change, I would get it looked at. Then I started...
